How many of us have started the new year with good, calm intentions and suddenly February is here and we are back in the same busy routine that we left back in December? Going back to work after the holiday break or getting the kids to school can have us chasing our tail in a rush to “get everything done”. Now would be the perfect time to make yourself top priority and ease into 2017 feeling your best.
Being on-the-go can wreak havoc on the body both physically and mentally so it’s important to look after your energy levels by giving your body the nutrients it needs.
Let’s be honest, that to-do list is never going to end! However much we try to convince ourselves that we will slow down once that chore is done or when we complete that work assignment something else will inevitably be important enough to be put back on the “list”. Slowing down doesn’t mean being lazy or letting things slip, it’s about getting through daily tasks with less panic and need to have everything completed and perfect. If dinner is late it’s not a disaster, just an inconvenience that will be forgotten by morning. So relax and enjoy cooking rather than rushing to get the job done!
Make a plan to put some quiet time aside for yourself this year. Try learning to become your own best friend and think of time for yourself as an investment in your family. Creating an early morning routine that you love can be the perfect way to have a peaceful and positive mind set for the entire day. Why not see if slowing down and taking time out for yourself can actually give you more energy!
